Novak Djokovic begins his bid to win a fourth straight major title against 95th-ranked Yen-hsun Lu of Taiwan on Tuesday at the French Open.

Also, nine-time champion Rafael Nadal opens against big-serving Sam Groth and Serena Williams faces 77th-ranked Magdalena Rybarikova as she starts the defense of her title.

Also on court will be second-seeded Andy Murray, resuming his first-round match against Radek Stepanek. The Czech took the first two sets 6-3, 6-3 before Murray found his rhythm and won the third 6-0. Murray was leading the fourth 4-2 when play was suspended Monday because of darkness.
